Coffee Videos of the Week: Up close with the Syphon

I’ve been trying to make syphon coffee daily in order to perfect my technique. It’s such a cool way to make coffee. I feel like I should be wearing a lab coat every time I fire up my little butane burner thing.

This video captures a little bit of the romance of syphon coffee. Glorying in the details.

Here’s another one – this is by the same people who made the Cup Coffee promo video.

    Nathan can you tell me why I must branch out and have a siphon coffee? Whats the big attraction?

    • For me it’s the aesthetic… the taste is different (obviously different to espresso) to other filter methods it seems a bit clearer and brighter, plunger has always had a muddiness to it that Syphon doesn’t. I haven’t tried other types of pourover, other than those drip filter machines that every workplace in the world has), and it’s much nicer than that.

      I wouldn’t say it’s a must. But it’s a fun, hands on, way to make coffee. And professional tasters swear by it for tasting the nuances of single origin coffee.
